the analysis is in some corners about the president here in the united states and his leadership on the issue and his presence in the region. in his own party, there are rumblings he should intervene more directly to help the fodder in syria, speaking of president obama, placing patriot missiles around the region to take down president bashar al asad's air power as soon as the current missile barrages can be contained. through mr. obama's critics the root of the absence of american leverage in the middle east today is a light footprint that was simply too light. is that shared? you're on the ground. is there a sense that the americans have been not present enough in all of this? >> absolutely. and it's not only that they have been absent, also when they have been present, they haven't been present substantially in the way people in the region would like them to be. president obama came to cairo after he was elected, delivered a positive speech, very much welcomed in this part of the world to re-set relations between the u.s. and the muslim world and the arab world. one of the things that he s
red state.com, you live in a bubble where reality rarely seeps in and obama is always one shadow away from the scandal that will end his presidency in disgrace. but there's a civil war under way in the alternate reality right now, the truth is trying to invade. there are strong forces working to repel it. there are people i'll call realists who recognize that change must occur or more electoral thumpings will happen. david frum is a leader of this group warning that the right wing media cabal can no longer be allowed to lead the party. >> the conservative followership has been fleeced, exploited and lived to by the conservative entertainment complex. >> bill crystal showed his maturity by saying compromise is valuable. >> it won't kill the country if we raise taxes a little bit on millionaires. it really won't i don't think. i don't really understand why respects don't take obama's offer. >> and seen sean hannity has gotten involved. >> i think you control the border first. you create a pathway for those people that are here. you don't say you got to go home. and that is a position th
the united states' potential role. health care was president obama's defining achievement for his first term. when we look at a second term will the president look at middle east peace, the road map to peace might this be his big deal for his second term? does it need to be? >> i think that's part of the motivation here. you know, you have coming up the palestinian authority which of course controls the west bank but not gaza is preparing to try to move toward enhanced status within the united nations and then president abbas indicated in the aftermath of that he might petition prime minister netanyahu to resume middle east negotiations. hamas obviously hears that and as we've seen many times in the past is trying to act as the spoiler. it's trying to remind the palestinian people that it's the resistance that's not looking for a peaceful resolution to this. so there's a lot of politics in play in what hamas has done and potential politics in play in terms of how israel responds. obviously this could create an opening down the road. the united states wants to see a return to an actual negoti
familiar with what kind of targeting the obama campaign did to the lgbt voters in the state? >> i don't know. i think we have all heard that their research showed the boat which is the same thing we have seen in other polling. huge votes in lgbt and straight. marriage equality is a top motivator. perhaps you could add to that but i think it's something that they saw. there was certainly no price to be paid for his position on marriage equality and there's a significant case to be made that there was increased excitement among these voters. because of that position in the contrast to that position with his opana. >> if you look at lgbt voters in the gallup data, they are disproportionately female, younger and nonwhite. those are all obama consistencies so i said what if given those characteristics they voted like the general public did, given that their race and aging characteristics and if that happens the lgbt vote should be about 56-44 for obama and romney, which suggest there is something about the lgbt thing that gives obama a 21-point swing. and i'm not saying that is all lgbt, b
in the united states hoped it would, and i think a recognition, and evolution by president obama away from the kind of discussion of nation-building that marked the 2008 campaign where he basically said nation-building is not our mission. and when you make that kind of statement, then it raises the question, how are you going to get beyond the 1% in developments and foreign-aid that paul describes? there was a proposal in washington in 2009, early 2010 to combine the development, diplomacy, and defense budgets together and allow an administration that came up largely between secretary gates and clinton, allow the administration, and the administration to move that money so that your initial instinct was not necessarily trying to be a military solution to every problem. of course it ran up immediately against congressional committees that are responsible for certain budgets. also, just a concern about whether or not that would affect the mix in a way many people, i think in washington were not comfortable with it. the idea died. might be time to bring it back. >> and abel comment on several
, it does create quite a nice savings for the program overall. >> reporter: but after president obama's re-election, health care reform is on more solid footing. still, that leaves plenty of unknowns, including what state health insurance exchanges will look like. states have until friday to opt in. tomorrow, we'll take a look at state-run exchanges, and some of the other factors that could change the way we pay for health care. sylvia hall, "n.b.r.," whingn. >> susie: tomorrow on "n.b.r." a big day for retail earnings: walmart, target, dollar tree, and gap; all report results. and china's chooses its new diplomatic team, we look at that nation's historic once-in-a- decade leadership change. >> tom: the negotiations on avoiding the fiscal cliff will impact your paycheck, and possibly your portfolio, even if the only stocks you own are in mutual funds in a 401-k. john sweeney is executive vice president of planning and advisory services with fidelity investments. john, certainly this is a big threat for all investors, all income earners, how big is it for long-term investors? >> thanks, tom
question about you asked burma and the united states and president obama's embrace of their reform efforts and support for it. in no other way that you can imagine is an entry by burma into the international community and what opportunity that it provides economically. that is an important focus of the burmese leadership. the economic prospects and promises of their coming into the international community and supported by the u.s. that is a path that if the north koreans would address the nuclear issue that would be available to them. we have said that from the outset. it is an important example for them to contemplate. it is a regime that continues to be isolated -- a regime that is a complete outlier. it is failing its people economically. there is another path. that example is an important one -- of a country totally isolated for many years, under extreme sanctions from the u.s., making a determination to go a different way. what the positive aspects are for their people and country are manifest and will be very clearly underscored by the president's visit. it is an important example fo
and served in the illinois state senate with president obama. let me get to you to respond to what you heard from chris van holland, especially on the issue of taxes. did i think there is ambiguity on the democratic side on the aisle and i think there is something chris did not say and we have not heard from the president. it is, who is rich? there is the 250,000 of description, the $500 .escription and many people across both sides of the aisle represent entities organized as passthroughs. very little discussion beyond the bumper sticker rhetoric on the impact on passthroughs as it relates to higher rates. did you notice really what we have not heard from the white house? a discussion on the other component that is where are the spending cuts? the discussion about that. there has not been any discussion since the election about where the cuts are. remember, the president described a balanced approach as a 1-3 revenue to cut ratio. we have been having the conversation on the revenue side. i think house republicans are here ready to be a part of the discussion and part of the solution. we are
at the monastery where a monk gave the president and secretary of state hillary clinton a tour of the monastery and the president told the monk that the united states could use some prayers right now to avoid the fiscal cliff. listen here. >> (inaudible) >> president obama also met with the king of thailand overnight who is the longest reigning monarch in the world. been in power since 1946. believe it or not, the king of thailand born in massachusetts, as a gift, the president obama gave the king an album with pictures of the all the presidents and first ladies he's met starting with eisenhower and the last page was left blank, we're told so there's a picture of a picture with president obama from this week's trip. and once it's wrapped up in thailand, it's off to burma. no sitting u.s. president has been to burma and their record on human rights is not great, but white house officials say they think that the burmese have taken some positive steps toward democracy lately and their position, the white house's position is that the best way to address any concerns about human rights violations i
. in this state they ignored this attack by the obama administration on religious liberties, which obamacare and -- almost 80% of the catholics in this state voted for liberal democrats, abortion. guy think it was a big problem by the church not speaking out. they seem to be so afraid of lawyers and being sued that they were calworks -- were cowards, especially from the pulpits. they totally neglected it. i don't blame the republicans. i blame the catholic church. host: we are asking republicans only this morning to discuss the future of their party, basically because of all the voices that continued on the weekend, republican voices, leaders of the party talking about what mitt romney has said about why he lost and how to afford. rick santorum, a former pennsylvania senator, writes -- today."n "usa as for another republican voice, marco rubio. this is a store in "politico" this morning. -- a story. there's a little of what the senator had to say.

of course the united states confronts prodigious challenges of its own, even as president obama must replace many of the league officials who have been responsible for the formulation of u.s.-china policy during his first term. so the question, it seems to me, as some of them are quite obvious but it's important to save some of them at the outset. should we anticipate continuity or discontinuity in the bilateral relationship? how would both leadership seek to protect and advance their interests? will this reinforce or undermine the capacity and incentives of both leaderships to cooperate on pressing international issues? and what of course are the potential consequences if there is increased stress in an additional fault lines introduced into the bilateral relationship? and last, what should we be looking for and anticipating in the weeks and months ahead? i'm joined this win by three of my colleagues from the john l. thorne china sent to come and buy two distinguished experts from other institutions here in washington. who will respond to the presentations by the panelists, and then moderat
states, but it says the u.s. must first end its policy of hostility toward the north. the message came almost a week after the re-election of u.s. president barack obama. experts say the result should be a relief for the north as his republican challenger, mitt romney, had presented a much harsher policy toward the country. in an editorial in monday's edition of the korean workers'party's rodong sinmun newspaper, the north urges the u.s. government to make the 1953 korean war armistice a peace treaty. it says that by doing so the u.s. can show its willingness to end its hostile policy towards the north. the north says it would be then able to work with the u.s. to seek better relations and resolve nuclear issues. in february, if two nations agreed on a food aid program for north korea. in exchange for a moratorium on its nuclear and missile development. but the u.s. suspended the program after the north carried out a rocket launch test in april. >>> winter is quickly approaching northern parts of asia. rachel ferguson is here with the weather. rachel? >>> all right. yes, we have a snow
a little too much of that freedom recently. the obama administration meanwhile is giving states another month to decide what role if anything they'll play in carrying out the new health care law. states have been required to declare intentions by today, but they'll have until december 14th. republican governors have requested more time and the associated press reports that 16 states are still mulling decisions. and the "wall street journal" report it is that the office of the controller of the currency will formally serve jcht p morgan chase with actions regarding money laundering. on the cc expected to allege weakness in the antimony laundering systems. andrew, i'm going to take the opposite side of you on the whole delta thing. it's so obvious to take that side to say -- >> let's get the article here. >> what if it's been proven that -- >> let help set it up. >> what if it's proven that age has very little to do -- >> here it is. delta flies new routes to profits older jets. the idea is hear one of the reasons they're making as much money as they are is because they're not buying new
with president obama at the white house. lee saunders, president of asfcme, the american federation of state, court and municipality state county and municipal employees said the coalition that re-elected president obama would remain intact to pressure lawmakers during the standoff over the fiscal curve. >> what we're going to do is keep our members mobilized and organized in certain communities across the country. we're going to another campaign, we won the election but we're going into another campaign now. >> for his part president obama reiterated on wednesday the election had delivered a clear verdict on the question of whether taxes should be raised on income over $250,000. >> if there was one thing that everybody understood it was a big difference between myself and mr. romney it was when it comes to how we reduce our deficit i argued for a polled, responsible approach, and part of that included make sure the wealthiest americans pay a little bit more. i think every voter out there understood that that was an important debate. and the majority of voters agreed with me. >> president ob
and the state department. the white house saying well, you know, requests about diplomatic security don't really go through us. that's more through the state department. and then there was tension there and then when obama was asked about it, you know, do you stand with secretary clinton you know yeah the buck stops with me. every time you go into the details it always goes that would have been handled by the intelligence community. that's under investigation. it never -- exactly. >> bill: it's all under investigation. but here is -- i'm saying this with all due respect how big a fraud this is. if i'm in the washington press corps you know this press conference is a lot different than that because i basically say, mr. president, i'm a simple man, you know, i always start it with that to be humble. when did you know about -- president, when did you know about cia cia director petraeus' situation. what day? what hour did you know? if he dose it's under investigation i can't tell you. i go oh phooey phooey. that doesn't impede on any investigation. it's a question between bill and barack? when did

to these questions. >> i think you picked up quite rightly the question of the degree to which the united states wants to lead it was seen as a subset of fact, wants to spend the resources that it takes to lead. so you hear this doubt and president obama's own words each time he was gone to give a major speech on afghanistan, the west point speech on the command of the company pulled tight again during presidential debates. he kept saying it's time for nationbuilding at home. what was that tapping into? that was tapping into an emotion you hear the electorate can see in the polls. i'm not saying it's a good thing or bad thing, but americans feel as if we are overinvested abroad. then you look at events to which we feel we are the in the united states, that things are out of control, there isn't enough american power and you have become that much to that, which as any to stay invested as we were in that golden. you just describe between 89 and 99, which is a great unipolar moment. the message you hear from the obama administration is that moment is that coming back again. you have to pick your fi
states and federal government oversees the industry known as compound and pharmacies. "washington journal" is next. host: medicare premiums are set to rise. president obama sets a trip to asia today. he and other capital hill leaders sat down yesterday. a special willingness to work together. for our first 45 minutes we want to see about your ability and confidence and congressional leaders. here is how you can call in this morning two-way end. -- two ways. you can tweet us or send an email. we invite you to check out our facebook page. the headlines for this meeting yesterday reflect the same type of town seen in the washington post this morning. a picture of president obama and john boehner. the upbeat tone was a dramatic shift from recent years when the president and a gop fortified by anti-government activists clashed repeatedly over spending and taxes. if he were to go to yesterday's new york times, they have a listening are at least pictures of the key leaders that will be involved in this process. to show you where they stand specifically on some issues, here is the president sayin
much a purple state. i do not think it is definitely a democratic state. we have to see beyond obama because his candidacy and election were quite unique. to echo what you said about congress, i think we have to find leaders of both parties who are willing to bargain. at the obama's -- i think problem on that, he does not have the iou's to call in. he does not have a lot of arrow's a dent in his quiver to use. but we could use bob dole, those people that solved a long-range picture and not just today. >> excellent. speaking of long-range picture, few people can bring that to the party then the way richard norton smith chan. going back several hundred years. >> oh, gosh. [laughter] thank you. it is an honor to be on this panel. i have bought more than once in the storm surge of words that has washed over us over the last 10 days, there is a tendency, cable tv has 24 hours to fill, the internet has everything to fill. there is a tendency to over analyze. two years ago at this exact point, we were all being told that barack obama was in all likelihood a one-term president. we were talki
served in the illinois state senate with president obama. fed me give you to respond to what you have heard to chris van hollen on the notion of taxes and republicans being prepared to extend the bush tax cuts for those earning less than $250 a year to attack there is ambiguity on the democratic side of the aisle. there is something that chris did not say and that we have not heard from the president. the ambiguity is -- who is risk that there is a 250 description. there is a 500 description. there has not been a clear discussion on the impact of the past two entities. i represent suburban chicago and many other folks across both sides of the aisle. i represent entities that are organized and very little discussion beyond the bumper sticker rhetoric on the impact of pass-throughs as relates to these higher rates. the second thing is the -- to notice what we have not heard from the white house? but we have not heard from the white house is a discussion of the other component that is -- where are the spending cuts and the savings? there has been a lot of discussion about that. there has
to actually have a budget for the first time in four years for the united states of america. and again, barack obama is going to look at his legacy and looking at markets. he has a terrific opportunity right here and right now to embrace small business, get the markets growing again and really do a lot for his legacy in the long run. rick: simon, americans do seem to want to see a certain level of cooperation between the parties. you know, but this is a president who has not really shown a willingness to reach across the aisle. now in his second term does that change? >> well, i don't agree with the first statement but i think that he has made it clear from his statements of the last few days that he expects to work with john boehner and republicans and mitch mcconnell in the senate to try to, you know, tackle a few big things. i think one of the things my, the other guest said, which is just fallacious and wrong and shouldn't be repeated is that the idea that the raising rates on people over $250,000 is going to hit a majority of small business owners. >> simon, y a small business. you're a p
the state department's chief economist and a former obama administration adviser on the auto bailout. this forum hosted by the world affairs councils of america, runs a little under an hour. >> thank you very much for that introduction. lori said to me that since we started a bit late, provided it's okay with her speakers we will run a little bit late, maybe five or 10 after 2:00. i'm going to ask them questions for about 40 minutes and then throw the floor open to you, so get your notebooks out in your questions and you can grill them in a moment. before starting, lori asked me to set set the frame a little bit and to talk just for a moment about u.s. competitiveness in the u.s. economy in a global context and there actually was an oecd report they came that came out this morning that does that admirably. this report submits that within four years, by 2016, the chinese economy will be bigger than the u.s. economy, and what the oecd report sort of further says, it's a great reporting appearances to take a look on line. today, the u.s. economy is accounting for 23% of the world's econ
and the resulting pelt gone cuts were the fault of president obama. and this was yiewlsed during the campaign to go around the country and go to defense-dependent areas that also happened to be swing states and use a scare campaign about job impacts of pentagon cuts. but, in fact, people as central to the campaign as paul ryan, for example, voted for the sequester. so to the extent that anybody's responsible for the impending sequester should it happen, both parties played a role in that. so the idea of pinning this possible policy change on president obama was flawed in the first place. but in addition, there are the same kind of exaggerations in the state and the regional claims about the impacts as there were in terms of the claims about the overall effects on the national economy. and i think, you know, we can go into this more, but i think one reason is that pentagon spending is more concentrated than the industry would have you believe. they're always talking about, well, if you don't build this plane, it's going to have impacts in 44 states and, therefore, we can't possibly get rid of it eit
was the campaign? >> well, first it was a very close election in ohio and ohio was one of key states, even if we won ohio, turns out the electoral vote count would have gone to president obama. we lost by two points in ohio. recall back in 2004 when john kerry lost to george bush he would often say both publicly and to me on the floor of the senate, but for half the people that could fit in the ohio state stadium called the horseshoe i would be president today. it was a very narrow victory. i do think there were some reasons that are almost technical that some of you understand well. there are some folks here from silicon valley who are very good at social media and their turnout efforts, the democrats, were quite effective. if you look at the numbers, after the fact, the turnout for democrats among their base was better than we expected. i would say better than they expected based on their polling and their sampling. so, you know, they did a better job than we did getting their voters to the polls. mitt romney got fewer votes than john mccain in ohio and still came within two points. the techno
, they are burning up the phone lines. that's essentially what the united states is doing. you know, of course, president obama is watching this very closely, but he is being updated by secretary clinton, and i just ran out of the briefing to do the slide shot. the briefing here at the state department. they gave a list, again, of more phone calls. the secretary has been making over the past few days. you know, it includes the prime ministers of basically from israel, egypt, the u.n. secretary general ban ki moon. french foreign minister qatari prime minister, foreign minister, and the turkish foreign minister. you can see what they're doing is tapping the countries that have the most influence. number one would have to be egypt. very, very important. also turkey. you can see the delicate balancing act by the president and secretary clinton is saying the same thing. on the one hand israel has the right to defend itself against these rocket attacks from gaza, but it also has to try to keep this to a minimum and try to bring this as they keep saying de-escalate the situation. suzanne. >> jill, s

the old order argument that the united states always have to be the leader and you had a president obama a candidate or a president who has made clear over the past four years that while he believes there are moments when american interests are vitally challenged, where it has to step in and take the lead, the bin laden raid cometh to the iranian nuclear program. there are many other issues in which he is perfectly happy to have the rest of the world step up. we saw this in libya and boosting the outcome of this to some degree in libya. this is part of life in the united states is described at the light footprint strategy. the idea of the u.s. does not have to be falling and to every single issue. so what the light footprint and what that not so good at? 35 miles from islamabad of course is that the knowledge of anybody else in pakistan. it is fairly good at getting deep down into the iranian nuclear program using cyberweapons and i've spent a fair bit of reporting time in the past two years on the question of how the united states managed to use its type logical advantage to going to do
over the weekend was thailand and late last night, president obama became the first bt to ever visit mee you mar. he met with the national league of democracy there along with secretary of state hilary clinton. he spoke with the president and said his trip is not an endorsement of the new government, which is in the middle of a transition to democracy, but he did praise the country for shaking off its military rule and press the government for more reform. obviously we're having a little bit of technical problems, but the president said the steps the president has taken for release of the prisoners and his commitment to work with the u.s. on human rights dialogue will unlease the incredible potential of that beautiful country. this is obama's first trip overseas since his reelection shows he is serious about shifting america's focus leastward. the two are continuing to fire rockets and israel has blamed hamas for does sends of arrests since the violence started. more "bill press show" after the break. we'll be right back. here in our own country. >> it's an iss
, and that is where i think that israel and the united states very much had this sort of camaraderie and even despite the bad blood between netanyahu and our leader president obama, and the countries do maintain a healthy relationship, and you have a lot of american jews who do have dual citizenship as well even today. >> point that out, because the jewish vote is very vital in the country as we watched it play out in the election, and why is that? >> well, listen, first of all, they have a fantastic lobby which is called apac which is american israel political action committee and they do a fantastic job in representing american jews before the congress. there's the one thing with congress that they can -- the one thing they can agree on these days is support for israel and the ability to defend themselves, and in fact, they recently passed unanimously, resolutions in both chambers saying that israel has the right the do so. so the israeli population is at one point 70 years ago was 3.5% of the american population, and today it is around 2% and in apparently something like seven years, seven years,

zelig. austin goolsbee, former chairman of the council of economic investors under president obama, and michael boskin, who spoke last night as chief economic advisor for george h. w. bush. we have a whole world to spend. i want to start out with the united states. very few people in this room understand the president as well as us. many are asking -- what is going to come? i would like to look through the fiscal cliff and ask you to describe for us how you see the budget negotiations playing out over the next six months. >> it feels to me like they always had a deal last year. the principal bottleneck was not that the president was on willing to offer cuts. it was that there was a group of republicans in the house who would not go for the revenue. i think that is still the bottle neck now. you probably saw the article this morning from hubbard. i take from this collection some optimism of 2013 and the way that might play out, whether we go or do not go over the fiscal cliff, we get to some space where if they did $1 trillion in cuts and reforms it was $1 trillion on discretionary,
not by the opponent but by the super pac. we had $100 million spent by the president in nine states, $100 million on the air which is more than what mccain spent in its entirety. >> i think house races had an impact because barack obama, sherrod brown, governors, they had some definition. so that outside spending is a little less nefarious. it's still tough to deal with. but if you're not known it's going to be an imact about this. there's a term about politics which is the amount of television you buy. it means the average viewer sees the ad 10 times. in this election the republicans super pacs were at 9,000 or 10,000 points. i spent a lot of nights in hotel rooms there. and you turn on to tell vision. it was wall to wall political act and in many of those markets you see two or three ads. there is strong differences on this but we had one individual, one spend 100 million on the presidential direction. one person will try. there will be soul searching on the republican side. it had all this money. i don't think it's going away. but this is a big question in 2016, the democrats and republicans w
diller relationship, there are a couple of questions that come to mind. the first is whether the obama administration will continue this foreign-policy pivot toward the pacific. it is my sense the general consensus is, yes, the administration will continue to prioritize and state -- the focus policies. the second is the extent which latin america as a region is factoring into the u.s. focus on the pacific. some countries in the region are certainly benefiting from the trade arrangements that i have mentioned, but what about the rest of the region? are we releasing much in the wake of strategic integration in the western hemisphere in an effort to were fully engaged asia? i think it is important to note that latin american countries certainly are not waiting for the united states to engage the pacific to deepen the relations across the pacific. we have several regions, a series of bilateral trade agreements between china and countries in the region, the two in other asian countries and latin american countries, and other recent cooperation between china and regional organizations. latin

of president obama, as he sees the growing obligations internationally as well as a continued and very important obligation here at home with the economy, what will we see him doing? the role of the secretary of state growing, perhaps, in this coming term. >> yeah, i think you're right. i think we are going to see our global influence grow. i mean, he has spent his first term really focusing on the things he was trying to get done at home. now he's got a little bit of latitude to be able to move us forward and build some really strong relationships, be it in asia, really figuring out how we're going to engage with china so we can with compete on an economic front. i think we'll see a lot more of this happening. i don't think his work economically in building allies around the world is going to in any way change how we're having conversations with israel and working on our issues in the middle east. >> one of his first major trips here after being re-elected, what does that say? >> it says that he does want to pay more attention to international affairs. he's going to have to with what'
